Default 18" Tire Question

I picked up a set of AFS replicas 9x18 & 10.5 x18. Thinking of 275/35/18 front and 295/35/18 rear. I want something that is going to handle good. How does the 295 fill out the 10.5 wheel?

Is your car a DD, track only, or mostly street with a once and a while trip to the track? What kind of power are you putting down? These are all important in picking size because when you start getting wider, you go into drag radial sizes and street tires are hard to find.

In the summer, I drive it as a DD. Engine is stock except for catback. Plan on CAI, pulley and tune. Right now focusing on handling w/subframes, springs, bushings and the 18's.

Might have and occasional track trip, but I'll probably keep the 17's and go with some dr's if I got serious. For the 18's, not sure if I want the DR's. I'll still be driving it to work and possibly in the rain. The tire selection is very limited above 295.

295 will fit good on the 10.5 rim, 315 fits perfect..I wouldn't go smaller than a 295 out back and bigger than a 275 up front, I had 265's up front on a 9" rim and it fit perfect.

I have 295 BFG KDW's on 18x11 wheel, BFG's tend to be wider than most tires out there

I have these same tires and I love them. I have over 25k on mine and they look like they only have about 3k.

Thanks for the feedback. Going to look at the 295's. The KDW's and Toyos both look great. Also looking at the Potenza RE 760's.
